I have the same problem with any pci-e external card (tried 3 diferent cards) but it would speckle & freeze monitor, then go blank (black screen). I turned off on board video, set vram to 0, & tried external powered vcard & board powered. I never had a "OVER HEATING" issue w/ cpu, gpu or anything else. I tried to get help from ECS (the board maker), big waste of time!!!! The only video this seems to want to run is its own ONBOARD! It works fawlessly for what it is! I've been trying to solve the same issue for the 8 months I've had the board. I still look, thinking maybe i'll get lucky. I basically given up on ever using a good v-card w/ this board.

Could be the CPU is overheating, you may want to check and make sure all fans are working properly, as well as making sure you have a decent amount of thermal paste on your heatsink, i recommend antec silver.

What are the advantages of playing games?


One of the most popular things with children when it comes to the computer are video games or the computer games. From puzzles to racing, action to sports, strategy to adventure, computer games are possibly the biggest addiction with most children. The positive side is that they can teach knowledge and improve physical and mental skills. I believe that playing games are a part of happiness in our life and I know that you also like to play games. Kids like to play more snakes games. So I suggest you one new game in the market for kids. limax is the best game in the market. In Limax.io, you are a small ball of light that grows as you consume more light. Behind your ball, a light trail follows as you speed up. Try it once, you feel good after playing this game.

Why games keep freezing while playing, basically all games?


It's possible your video card is getting overheated. Laptops often use APUs (video card and CPU/processor combined) in a very small frame and they get dirty (or sometimes even damaged) over time.

I would need to know more about your system to understand what's wrong, but my best guess is that your computer has a lot of dust in it or is just outdated. The more programs you download into it, the slower it can become. The more dust that accrues, the more crashing that occurs when you run any intensive program, even a simple hidden object game.

A simple and safe solution is to buy a can of compressed air (specifically for electronics, make sure it says it's safe for them) and just spray in short, quick bursts into the vents of your laptop.

If you have a tower (a big PC box that connects to a monitor or TV), you can usually quite easily unscrew the side of the case (tower) and use the compressed air to blow dust off of the components. So long as you don't touch anything inside, you shouldn't damage it, but if you desperately feel the need to put your fingers in there, make sure your computer is unplugged and that you've grounded yourself by touching a metal object, such as your case if it's not plastic. Static electricity can, although rarely, damage the components inside.

Alternatively just buy a new computer. Sometimes a PC has just run its course and the parts inside aren't worth salvaging for the average consumer. You could probably get a few bucks for it online to put towards a new computer.

That also brings up the issue of clearing your computer, though, so don't just sell it without finding out how to do that. A factory reset would do it, but you usually have to reinstall the OS.

What are some easy computer games that my grandma could play?


I think she will enjoy point & click adventures, wizard101, puzzle games, simulators, turn based strategy games and turn based rpg's. You should check it out and teach her how to play the games. Those are fun and easy games to play. Computer and video games should be indulged in a measured manner. There are advantages in playing games and having fun topped it all. However, everyone knows that games can be addictive so one must be careful to set a limit and still be productive in other ways. Playing computer or video games should just be for fun and should not cause a problem with a person's productivity.

How do I play these games? Every game I try to play says my trial subscription has expired. Am I supposed to get a registration number?


It sounds like you were playing a limited shareware version (ie., a short-term trial), so you probably need to buy the full version of the games to continue playing them.

White screen when playing pc games


Sounds like 1- you have a virus or 2- your computer's graphics card is not sufficient for the game you are trying to play. Double check all the requirements, if you meet them you have a virus. Hope i've shed some light on the problem :)
